    Brooks & Dunn - The Early Years

    Leon Eric "Kix" Brooks III was born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana while Ronnie Gene Dunn was born and raised in Coleman, Texas. At the age of 12, Brooks made his first singing performance and continued to sing in clubs and venues throughout high school. Brooks also started to write some songs. Ronnie Dunn's father had been a guitarist who sang in a mountain string band for fun. Dunn learned to play the bass when he was in high school. Originally Dunn wanted to become a Baptist preacher but started feeling very passionate about music and began playin' gigs in honky-tonk bars. Eventually he won a talent contest, which took him to Nashville where he would soon meet Brooks.

    Brooks & Dunn Become A Duo

    Both Brooks and Dunn started out as solo country singers until they met at a Nashville music publishing company in 1990. They began performing together under Arista Records and had their first hit song with Brand New Man from the album of the same name. A buckin' bronco couldn't kick Brand New Man off the charts and it stayed there longer than any other album - except for Garth Brooks' first CD. Over the years they've wrangled tons of awards including two Grammys. The cowboys also held the title of vocal duo from 1991 to 1997 by The Academy of Country Music and were named vocal duo of the year from 1992 to 1999 by The Country Music Association. Brooks & Dunn have inspired many of today's country artists and remain one of the top country acts.
